Yikes thats expensive. I can get 2kWh worth of Lifep04 cells for around $600 and they are going to get a much better price than I can get. Man if these things actually sell for $2500 maybe I need to order a crap ton of cells to make a few and at that price I cant believe they didnt add a 240V AC output.

Weird, when you buy $600 worth of LiFePO4 cells do they include a both a AC charger, Solar charge controller, and inverter for free along with 2 DC outlets, 6 AC outlets along with a bunch of USB outlets? Not to mention a LCD screen all neatly enclosed? For $600? Can you link me?

No of course not but the rest of that stuff is not that expensive or complicated either. Just surprised how expensive it is, obviously everyone is not going to make their own.

To be honest, if I was in a scenario where I require something like this, it would be dumb for me to buy all those parts separately and then carry them with me as I travel. This of course is a niche product for ppl in certain scenario's where something like this is required but if I was in such a position I would appreciate a product like this.

As for complaining about it not having 240v, why would you need something like that? All electronic chargers are universal to begin with and someone buying this is most likely not going to have a iron or hairdryer that is 240v. If on the off chance they do, you can buy converter.

This is one of the best available portable power stations in its class with a trusted brand name. $1 per Wh is reasonable. Leoch and Pecron have theirs pros and cons. Diy is always cheaper.

Sells for US$1600 at Amazon US. The recent price is likely due to currency flucuations.

I already have a Bluetti EB150 1000W 1500Wh. Otherwise, I would be buying this. This is more suited for higher power uses like power tools or cooking applainces. Has moderate standby or overhead power use....so not good for low power appliances like CPAP or 12V fridges.

This is overpriced.
If you don't care thats fine but i would wait until more companies get into the game and prices come down.

This is like buying LED bulbs for $50 each over 10 years ago
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Haha have you actually priced those out? As someone that was pricing out a dual battery system for my truck I realized the cost just wasn't worth it. The components alone without a battery was around 500 USD. I think you're vastly underestimating how much building one of these would cost.

I see value in this at 50c a kwh, but prices aren't there yet. If you need this now it's a decent price.

I've been looking at something like this for years, and at least this one is cheaper than the Goal Zero one (although I don't know if it's better made).

Lifepo4 cells really getting cheap. Made an offgrid backup system for my weekend cottage with a stack of used 250 W solar panels recycle from an Ontario solar farm and 3000 watts (8 x 120 A) of lifepo4 with an 24V inverter + everything else too long to list here. Keeps the fridge / freezer running solid when I am away.
2 years ago the batteries were about $1200 or $125 each delivered. Today I could get a 250 Amp cell for less $100. Good time to tinker with Lifepo4 Smiling Face With Open Mouth Definitely not portable and easy like OP's deal though.
